Forest maintenance before the arrival of the high season
This week, the loggers and the forestry service carried out a major wood cut in the neighbouring forest belonging to the Camp Foundation.
Some old and damaged trees were in danger of collapsing. It was therefore important, for safety reasons, to carry out this work.
In addition to removing potentially dangerous trees, it will also allow new growth and plantations to have more space and resources to develop.
Some of the cut wood will be chipped, and will be used on the floor of some of the play areas on the site. Another part will be used as firewood in our houses, especially in the Zwingli house. We can say that we produce our own resources.
This work was carried out during the low season, so as not to disturb our guests and to allow everyone to be safe outside the Camp. In particular, pedestrian access to the forest was prohibited.
